Moholy-Nagy: The Street Markets of London

Original cloth, 1936. First edition. A clean copy.

Moholy-Nagy: The Street Markets of London Laacute;szloacute; Moholy-Nagy provided 64 superb images for Mary Benedetta's book The Street Markets of London. He photographed 17 different markets, from Covent Garden to Choumert Road and Brixton to Berwick Street. The Caledonian Market and Petticoat Lane are especially well covered. "While living in England, Moholy was also commissioned to take photographs for three book projects: The Street Markets of London 1936 by Mary Benedetta, An Oxford University Chest 1938 by John Betjeman, and Eton Portrait 1937 by Bernard Fergusson. The resulting images reveal a remarkable change in his photographic sensibility, trading the dramatic perspectives of the Bauhaus years for a more neutral documentary approach." (Tate)
